So it appears one patrol car hit another patrol car all the more reason to not have more than two cars chasing someone and proves someone or several someones wasn't watching their intersections.

It could have been a car full of kids that was hit.

I remember while in EMT training they told us to be careful of other emergency vehicles coming to the same incident, to clear each intersection, and to beware of siren hypnosis.

This is why.
